2009 saw the passing of one of Jasper’s artists. While Barb had been not actively painting for the past few years she was once one of Alberta’s most prolific painters…living the life of an artist – complete with its struggles and pleasures.
In her name there is now an annual scholarship available – for a student wishing to continue on in the arts at college or university or for an emerging artist wishing to grow their skills through workshops / educational opportunities. For more info on Barb, her works continue to be available to fund the scholarships, or the scholarships – go to http://www.barbbrooksartist.com
DECEMBER 10th is the annual exhibit of Barb’s portfolio. Sales go towards the scholarships.
IOTAD is proud to be assisting Barb’s family with the scholarship process. It is in keeping with our PEOPLE PLACE PROCESS mandate.
